Hit Or Flop:
I have normal Body skin, which tends to get dry, as I’m too lazy to follow a regular lotion routine. Plus these days its so hot, that lotions make my arms and legs greasy. So anyways, these days Kronokare Provencal Lavender Body Lotion is my current summer favorite. Its milky white in color and runny in consistency. Once you apply it on your skin, it gets absorbed quickly, which is a must if you stay in a humid climate like me. The fragrance is mesmerizing. The Lavender aroma calms my senses. I mostly use Kronokare Provencal Lavender Body Lotion just before bedtime. It helps me sleep better.

What I like about this product, is that its also available in a small trial size of 60 ml for much cheaper. So you can actually try it on before buying the full size. Also it doesn’t feel sticky on the skin and gets absorbed quickly. Kronokare Provencal Lavender Body Lotion keeps my skin moisturized decently till the next shower. However if you have extremely dry skin, You may want to touch up during the day. It is packaged in a plastic squeeze bottle which is travel friendly. Also the screw cap flips open.

Beauty Gyaan (BG) Rating: 4.5/5

Recommendation: Overall I’m quite happy with the performance of this lotion. It has everything that I need and is my go-to lotion. Once the winters arrive, I might move on to a more intensive lotion. If you’re looking for a non-greasy, fast absorbing lotion which provides adequate moisture, Kronokare Provencal Lavender Body Lotion is worth a try.

Winter and skin damage:
As winter is setting in, listen to the cues that your skin is subtly giving you. Winds and cold weather are just as damaging to skin as over exposure to the sun. Before turning on the geyser, think of the effect of the relaxing warm shower on your skin; before sipping that hot cup of coffee, think of the effect it may have on your skin; before using a blower to keep you warm, think of how dry it is making your skin. Fight skin damage this winter. Depending on how dry your skin becomes, you may need a more emollient moisturizer. Any moisturizer should be loaded with ingredients that help keep moisture in your skin (glycerin, ceramides, fatty acids, and hyaluronic acid are just a few examples). (follow up brand stories: importance of keeping your skin hydrated and well moisturized, following a skin care regimen that suits your skin, products with Vitamin E as an essential addition to all home remedies). Also Vivel Cell Renew has loads to skincare items containing Vitamin E to fight the skin damage in winters.

Garnier Sun Control Daily Moisturiser Review

Todays review is about Garnier Sun Control Daily Moisturiser.

What Garnier Claims:
Its special formula blends a moisturizer with selected ingredients:
Formula with Mexoryl SX , a revolutionary patented molecule, to give protection from sun’s UV rays.
Vitamin E to help protect against free radicals and help delay the signs of ageing.
Glycerol and extracts of coriander to retain the skin’s moisture and prevent it from drying while nourishing.

Ingredients

Key Ingredients – Mexoryl SX,Vitamin E, Glycerol and extracts of coriander.

My skin type – combination.

Price – Rs. 130

Quantity – 50 ml

Packaging

Packaging: comes in a upside down white bottle with orange screw cap. the opening is a nozzle.

What Mexoryl SX does:
Mexoryl SX ia a water soluble sunscreen which filters UVA rays.

Consistency – its a light orange runny lotion.

Consistency

My Experience:
I got this one to use as a body sunscreen.
but had to try on my face as well for a complete review.
Upon application, my face became very greasyand it took some time to get absorbed into the skin.
Even after being absorbed my skin felt quite greasy.
the lotion is runny in consistency and the fragrance is quite ok.
this one will not bother sensitive noses.
I have dry skin on by body.
after application on my arms, it didnt feel greasy at all and got absorbed within minutes.
Now cuming to the sun protection factor, Garnier Sun Control Daily Moisturiser does not have any SPF mentioned.
However the newer versions of this moisturiser claims to have SPF 15.
Normally i avoid using any sunscreen without SPF as i don’t trust them.
This one i used just to test the effectiveness.
I can say I safely stayed in the sun for about 15 mins in the sun with this moisturiser on.
And after that my skin started tanning.
So, to sum up I would say this would be an ideal sunscreen to be worn indoors or if you going to be in the sun for a short duration and definately for those with dry skin, as its an excellent moisturiser.
Also since this moisturiser contains water soluble sunscreen, it wont work, if you sweat a lot or while swimming.

IMG_20130214_140511

Pros:
Suitable for dry skin
Provides short term sun protection.
Moisturiser + Suncreen 2-in-1
Pea sized quantity is enough for one application on face, so this bottle is goin to last for a long time.

Cons:
makes skin greasy apon application.
not suitable for oily & combination skin
No spf mentioned – not for reliable & long sun protection
Takes time to get absorbed
No complete ingredients list mentioned

Will I Purchase it again – Definately not, I’ll try other suncreens. Also as of now I’m very happy with my Garnier BB Cream.

Would I Recommend – Yes to dry skinned people and also to those who dont stay in the sun for long.

Beauty Gyaan (BG) Rating – 1.5 out of 5.
